June 23, 2014: "The Kiyosu Conference" at the Toronto Japanese Film Festival

The Canada Japan Society is proud to present the second of two films, "The Kiyosu Conference" (清須会議), at the 3rd Annual Toronto Japanese Film Festival (TJFF), which is running from June 12-27, 2014 at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. The CJS is offering DISCOUNTED TICKETS at $10 each for those interested in going.

"The Kiyosu Conference" is a hilarious offering from well-known director Koki Mitani (Rajio no Jikan, The Ushouten Hoteru, The Magic Hour), starring a veritable who’s-who of Japan’s biggest actors, including Koji Yakusho, Yo Oizumi, Fumiyo Kohinata, Koichi Sato, Satoshi Tsumabuki, Tadano Asano, Kyoka Suzuki, Miki Nakatani and Ayane Goriki. Loosely based on an historic epic that takes place at Kiyosu Castle in 1582, the movie tells the story of finding a successor to warlord Nobunaga Oda, who along with his oldest son and heir apparent, has been killed. Powerful clan members gather for a mental struggle involving wildly varied, hilarious strategies, shifting alliances, bargaining, cunning and deceit.
